GTT's Traffic Signal Control System Receives Tekne Award

November 11, 2011  | 

The Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA) has named Global Traffic Technologies (GTT) the recipient of the 2011 Tekne Award in the innovative electronic devices award category during a Nov. 3 ceremony.

The Tekne Awards, which were at the Minneapolis Convention Center, honor companies and individuals who have played a significant role in developing new technologies that positively impact the lives and futures of people living around the world.

GTT was awarded the Tekne for its Opticom Multimode technology. GTT, which, operates in the traffic signal priority control industry, maintains an install base of over 2,800 cities worldwide.

"The release of Opticom Multimode technology is a profound game changer for traffic, emergency, and transit personnel combined," said Doug Roberts, GTT's chief executive, in a statement. "Today, municipalities are working to build interoperable regional traffic signal priority control systems in and across city lines because citizens don't see boundaries."

MHTA judges selected one recipient out of the three finalists in each of the 14 Tekne Award categories, recognizing the best and brightest in development, education, commercialization and management of technology.

"This year's recipients, once again, raised the bar with the quality and originality of their entries and should all be very proud of their accomplishments," said Margaret Anderson Kelliher, president and chief executive of MHTA. "We are thrilled to recognize Global Traffic Technologies for its proven leadership and commitment to technology development."

This year's Tekne Awards ceremony was emceed by Paul Douglas, author, entrepreneur and meteorologist. A list of 2011 Tekne Award recipients and finalists is available online.
